    Who said I was complaining and whining?

    I'm just wanting different stuff instead of copying what's already been in another game

    In another game that did not have all the instruments and is no longer played.

    As someone who focuses on drums and has a gf playing who loves keys, I am glad to see a lot of the popular songs from previous titles get revisited.

    The 3-pack seems like a given for anyone who likes classic rock.

    I'd love to get Dragonforce, but with the way RB charts the hammer-ons and pull-offs (compared to GH3), I don't see those 2 songs being much fun at all. I'd download them for sure with GH3 note window forgiveness. It's still my one complaint about Rock Band charting - it's WAY too strict on the HOPOs. I don't understand why they aren't merely touch-notes, so that even if you miss one, you don't have to restrum.

    ...But all I see is that they're trying to copy Guitar Hero 3 Legends of Rock

    ....I like the idea of it being pro guitar, but I'd much rather stick to something new instead of bringing stuff that's already been in the early days of Guitar Hero.

    ...but if you're going to bring DragonForce, use songs that hasn't already been in a Guitar Hero or previous Rock Band Game.

    ...personally GH better since the charts are more fun to play and don't end the song instantly without some ending solo version that Guitar Hero was able to manage.

    Seriously HMX, let's see some new stuff! If it's the same band, different songs! lol

    But that's just me

    I said you were whining, and from what I quoted above, you were.

    Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Looking forward to the Peace Pack, as well as the songs they seem to have leaked in their video whenever those come out. :)

    I like getting songs from the other games because I don't play the others. GH has had quite a few songs that I like and I'm looking forward to having them all in RB.

    ...How many differences can you name between them?
    The intro was all taps in Smash...that's one that I can think of ;)

    In all honesty I'm pretty happy about DragonForce. My whining for 00s music and fun guitar has been quelled in one fell swoop. Woohoo!

    Can anyone confirm if it is going to be the edited 5 minute version of TTFaF or if it is going to be the full 8+ minute of epicness?

    It has to be the album version...

    The backlash would be too much.

    I enjoy DragonForce - I know I'll have to play them on a lower difficulty but hey.

    Of course the 3 pack is a must. I love all those songs.

    Great week with nice variety.

    I simply have to disagree with your assessment. Requiring accuracy is never a bad thing - in any video game of any genre.

    did anyone else notice that the video advertisement was for completely different songs? the video had love will tear us apart, american band, and freeze frame on it, and i'm pretty sure none of those songs were announced this week. xD
    Which video advertisement?

    This week proves that I have a wildly different definition for "legen....wait for it" than Der_Lex.

    That was actually a reference to the fact that this week offers several tracks that were in GH3: Legends of Rock.

    Although I'd still consider the artists in the peace pack legendary artists otherwise, to be honest.

    As for the 'no stuff that's already in another game' crowd: Why should HMX care about whether content that's new to the RB platform is already in another game? Especially when these version will offer instruments and modes that have never been in another game. I for one am really looking forward to finally being able to play the keys and drums on the original version of Black Magic Woman.

    Am I right in saying the DragonForce guitarist can't even play the guitar part in TTFaF? I know they make extensive use of computers and I saw a video of them playing live once and... well, it wasn't pretty. Not knocking the music, just saying that Pro mode on guitar will be hard, in case you hadn't realised :)

    I would never listen to DragonForce outside of Rock Band, but I will probably get their songs next week because they'll be fun to play (this is one of the reasons Rock Band rocks). I'll definitely get Black Magic Woman. I'll have to assess the other two once I've seen the charts (not sure I've even heard the Blood, Sweat and Tears song).

    Pretty good week! Any week where I'm definitely buying multiple tracks is good, and that's been most weeks since RB3's release! Long may it continue!

    Pretty much this here.

    Was very happy when songs like ""Freebird" and "In the Meantime" made their way over to RB and am looking forward to others coming as well.

    Through the Fire and Flames......pro?? I'm still playing Easy/Medium, so I'll be able to play this song in like......5 years? :D

    I'm curious if the Squire's pickups are even good enough for the amount of tapping needed to play this song properly.

    Is it bad that ever since Dragonforce was put into GH3, I hated them....

    And now that they're no longer only associated with GH, I actually sort of... kind of... really like them? :o

    The original cover version :p Fleetwood Mac did the original original. But I agree with what you're saying :)

    Sweet week.

    Dragonforce is a definite for me, and the other three are tempting. No way I'll be able to actually play the DF songs at a good level, but I still expect some fun.

    Fair enough, I should've gone for 'Santana's original cover version', but that would just have been convoluted. ;)

    Ooo, this is an interesting conundrum. Operation Ground and Pound is my favorite Dragonforce song, but pretty much the only thing I could ever hope to do well on is vocals. The classic 3-pack sounds excellent, although I've never actually heard Spinning Wheel. The Black Magic Woman pro chart is going to be an inevitable pickup. Good week overall.

    FINally Black Magic Woman is coming to RB!!! I've been waiting for that forever! Now we just need a Santana 3-12 pack :)

    Okay, it was only one song instead of an entire pack, but holy cow, my dream came true!!
    It's becoming tradition for me to predict '90s, since that's by far the most underrepresented decade in all of RB3's DLC library.

    But instead I'll go with an even more logical prediction: something I saw in a dream this week:

    Santana Pack 01:

    Evil Ways
    Black Magic Woman (X)
    Oye Como Va
    Everybody's Everything
    Winning (dedicated to Charlie Sheen)
    Smooth (featuring Rob Thomas) (X)
    And hey, I was one for two with the pro guitar upgrades!

    Oh, and this is an excellent week even without a full Santana pack. Definitely picking up the three classic tunes, and I'll give the rest a listen. Awesome to see Blood Sweat and Tears finally arrive!
